Pocone houses the Brazilian Pantaneiro Horse Breeders Association and is considered the cradle of this rustic but docile half-bred horse, which is now spread all over the extremely diverse wetlands of Pantanal. Habitat of 650 bird, 80 reptile and 75 mammal species, this region is also home of cattle, herdsmen and Pantaneiro horses. (Photo by Izan Petterle/LatinContent/Getty Images)
